Red Curry Paste
Published February 1, 2005.
Makes about 2 cups (for 4 curries)
Dried red chiles are traditionally used, but we found a combination of dried and fresh red chiles created a better texture. Red curry is delicious paired with beef, pork, duck, chicken, and all types of seafood. This recipe is designed to be prepared in a food processor. Cut the quantities in half if using a minichopper.
